Who did what to who?
Even making allowance for its production date (1934), this is an incredibly hokey murder mystery with a convoluted, utterly absurd plot. The acting by much of the cast is nothing to write home about. Nevertheless it's a lot of fun… er, mostly for all the wrong reasons. Mischa Auer, Louise Beavers and Jason Robards (Sr.) appear in minor roles. Directed by Mrs. Wallace Reid. Print quality is fair. Five minutes are missing, but this doesn't significantly affect the whacky plot. CAST NOTE: Mischa Auer is billed as Mischa Aver.
Watch this one and you're in for a kick in the pants here.. I didn't expect any of this.. You won't either except guy gets girl part which is carved in stone for every movie back then..The print wasn't great, but the story was.
